Yamaha APX Series
Seeing the difficulties musicians had when bringing acoustic instruments to the stage, Yamaha set about designing a new type of electro-acoustic guitar.
At this point, it was extremely difficult to play an acoustic instrument live and loud on stage. You would either have to deal with a lot of unwanted feedback or lengthy soundchecks and restrictive mic placements.
Hitting the scene in 1987, the Yamaha APX series finale gave gigging musicians a viable acoustic option on stage.
Specifically made for fantastic live performance, the Yamaha APX series set a new standard for electro-acoustic guitars.
Great Crafting for Sound and Playability
Giving the APX600FM its gorgeous new look is a Flame Maple top. But the beauty isn’t just skin deep as this beautiful wood also enhances the volume, projection and sustain of your sound.
Nato has been used for the back and sides, complementing the Flame Maple top and helping to deliver a full and natural acoustic tone.
The Yamaha APX 600 also uses a new bracing system, increasing bass response, giving you even fuller tone.
The body itself has a slimmer profile, making it more comfortable and easier to play. It also features a cutaway which allows for easy reach of the upper frets; essential for solos and lead guitar licks.
For enhanced playability and comfort, the Yamaha APX600 Flame Maple Top has a 25” scale length and narrower string spacing. These features are particularly convenient for new players but certainly add to the comfort of more seasoned guitarists.
One of the best features the Yamaha APX 600 has to offer is its stage-focused electronics.
Fitted with a SYSTEM65 preamp and an SRT piezo pickup, the Yamaha APX600FM is ready to be plugged-in and played live and loud.
The built-in tuner allows you to conveniently tune your strings whenever you need, without having to bring along a separate tuner.
3-band EQ is also on hand so you can individually adjust the bass, middle and treble frequencies while a Mid FQ allows for further tonal shaping.
You’ll also find a volume control so you can easily adjust your level on the fly and turn down between songs.
